I would like to thank Karen Bringman for leaving a sack of paper back books to be put in our reading center. In case you haven’t noticed, there is a magazine and book rack in the northwest corner of the lounge. These are donated books and magazines and any of our guests at the center are welcome to take them home to read and return…. just help yourself. We also have a closet full of jig-saw puzzles that Gladys Miller looks after. She would be glad to help anyone select one to take home. There is usually a puzzle in progress that anyone can work on if they want to.
Elma Erb brings down her Washington Journal to the center the next day and I see people looking at it. Thank you, Elma. Please feel free to come early or linger after and visit after lunch to read, visit or play cards.
Monday, the mini-bus driver stayed for lunch. The mini-bus picks up residents of Wellman and brings them to the center Monday and Thursday. The driver was Daniel Nisly of Kalona. Wednesday, the mini-bus brings residents of Kalona for lunch.
Thursday, the 17th was health day. The county health nurse, Tom Marsh, assisted by Marlene Bruegge, took blood pressures from 11 to 12. Grace Miller records the readings for them. Both Tom and Marlene left before lunch, but promised a health talk soon. Tom lives south of Kalona and Marlene in Washington.
George Yoder brought his daughter, Judy Moskalik and her son, Mark, of Coldwater, Michigan, to lunch Thursday, the 17th. George also brought another grandson, Kyle Yoder, son of Carrol Yoder of Wellman. The boys looked to be about the same age… early teenagers and are cousins.
Remember Tuesday evening, the 29th will be movie night. Check the chalk board for time and the name of the movie.
Tuesday, the 15th was the senior citizen potluck. There was a nice crowd, lots of good food and fellowship.
Senior dining centers have been informed by Heritage Agency on Aging that the charge for meals served to guests under the age of 60 will be $3.50 as of July 1. Exceptions are if your spouse is over 60. It’s still a good deal, where else can you take a guests, meet friends and have a complete meal for $3.50?
It was nice to see Wilma Schlabaugh was able to come to the center for lunch this week. She has been getting home delivered meals since she returned from the hospital following surgery a month or so ago.
In case you’re planning your 4th of July weekend, I’d like to point out that no meal will be served at the center July 5, the official holiday. Wellman is having their celebration that day, so there will be food available in connection with this.
Our cook has milk available for guests, always 2% and either 1% or skim. The old saying, “You never outgrow your need for milk” is very true. We try to serve our regulars who drink milk at the tables. Please feel free to come to the counter and get milk if you are missed or only want milk occasionally.
